Marine sourced omega-3 PUFA witnesses a large demand, owing to its numerous health benefits and wide range of applications in dietary supplements & infant formula, approval from leading organizations for its use in various products, and its easy availability & high production worldwide.

The large share of EPA/DHA is attributed to its wide application in infant formulas and health care & nutritional products, as a nutritional fortification ingredient.
